Knowledge Exchange Framework Dashboards Demo

This is a short demo of the prototype Knowledge Exchange Framework dashboards produced by Jisc Analytics Labs between May and October 2018. This demonstration has been released as part of Research England’s Knowledge Exchange Framework consultation and should be viewed in conjunction with the consultation documentation. These dashboards focus on making key KEF measures more accessible, so that institutions can understand, compare and improve their own performance.
